recover on said claims, to which actions defenses 
have been interposed that the rate of $1.50 was ex- 
cessive and illegal; and 

Whereas, by an ordinance passed June 11, 1948 
(Council Journal page 2427) section 185-56.5 was 
amended by reducing the rate of $1.50 per thou- 
sand cubic feet to a rate fifty percent higher than 
the rate fixed by ordinance and charged metered 
consumers within the city (now 60c per thousand 
cubic feet) ; and! 

Whereas, the persons against whom said claims 
and said court actions are instituted have, pending 
the settlement of the controversy, been permitted 
to pay the 60c rate without prejudice to the city's 
claim for the $1.50 or the contesting consumers' 
contention that the $1.50 rate is illegal ; now, there- 
fore, it is 

Ordered, that the Commissioner of Public Works 
and the Corporation Counsel be and they hereby 
are authorized and directed to compromise and set- 
tle said claims and court actions by accepting pay- 
ments to the City's Water fund of 60c per thousand 
cubic feet from August 21, 1945, !to November 1, 
1946, and at the rate (now 90c per thousand cubic 
feet) fixed by the amendatory ordinance of June 
11, 1948, from November 1, 1946.

section (a) of this paragraph it will be bound by and adhere to the condition 
specified for contractors set forth in said subsection (a) . 



5. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to prohibit the granting or ex- 
ercise of an exclusive right for the furnishing of non-aviation- products and supplies 
or any service of a non-aeronautical nature. 



6. The Sponsor will suitably operate and maintain the Airport and all facili- 
ties thereon or connected therewith which are necessary for airport purposes other 
than facilities owned or controlled by the United States, and will not permit any 
activity thereon which would interfere with its use for aeronautical purposes; Pro- 
vided . That nothing contained herein shall be construed to require that the Airport 
be operated and maintained for aeronautical uses during temporary periods when snow, 
flood, or other climatic conditions interfere substantially with such operation and 
maintenance. Essential facilities, including night lighting systems, when installed, 
will be operated in such a manner as to assure their availability to all users of the 
Airport. 



7. To the extent of its financial ability, the Sponsor will replace and re- 
pair all buildings, structures, and facilities developed under the Project which are 
destroyed or damaged, replacing or restoring them to a condition comparable to that

are determined by the Administrator to be necessary for the normal operation of the 
Airpprt. 



8. Insofar as is within its powers and reasonably possible, the Sponsor will 
prevent the use of any land either within or outside the boundaries of the Airport 
in any manner (including the construction, erection, alteration, or growth of any 
structure or other object thereon) which would create a hazard to the landing, tak- 
ing-off or maneuvering of aircraft at the Airport, or otherwise limit the usefulness 
of the Airport, This objective will be accomplished either by the adoption and en- 
forcement of a zoning ordinance and regulations or by the acquisition of easements 
or other interests in lands or airspace, or by both such methods. With respect to 
land outside the boundaries of the airport, the Sponsor will also remove or cause to 
be removed any growth, structure, or other ^ object thereon which would be a hazard to 
the landing, taking-off, or maneuvering of aircraft at the Airport, or if such re- 
moval is not feasible, will mark or light such growth, structure, or other object as 
an airport obstruction or cause it to be so marked or lighted. The airport approach 
standards to be followed in performing the covenants contained in this paragraph 
shall be those established by the Administrator in Office of Airports Drawing No. 672 
dated September l, 1946, unless otherwise authorized by the Administrator. 



9. All facilities of the Airport developed with Federal aid and all those usable 
for the landing and taking-off of aircraft will be available to the United States at 
all times, without charge, for use by military and naval aircraft in common with 
other aircraft, except that if the use by military and naval aircraft is substantial, 
a reasonable share, proportional to such use, of the cost of operating and maintain- 
ing facilities so used, may be charged. The amount of use to be considered "sub- 
stantial" and the charges to be made therefore shall be determined by the Sponsor 
and the using agency.

10. The Sponsor will furnish to any civil agency of the United States, with- 
out charge (except for light, heat, janitor service, and similar facilities and 
services at the reasonable cost thereof), such space In airport buildings as may be 
reasonably adequate for use in connection with any airport air traffic control 
activities, weather-reporting activities, and communications activities related to 
airport air traffic control, which are necessary to the safe and efficient operation 
of the Airport and which such agency may deem it necessary to establish and maintain 
at the Airport for such purpose.

deeds, leases, operation and use agreements, regulations, and other instruments, 
will be available for inspection by any duly authorized representative of the Ad- 
ministrator upon reasonable request. The Sponsor will furnish to the Administrator, 
upon request a true copy of any such document.

deprive it of any of the r lghts and powers necessary to perform any or all of the 
covenants made herein, unless by such transact ion the obligation to perform all such 
covenants is assumed by another public agency eligible under the Act and the Regu- 
lations to assume such obligations and having the power, authority and financial 
resources to carry out all such obligations. If an arrangement is made for manage- 
ment or operation of the airport by any agency or person other than the Sponsor or 
an employee of the Sponsor, the Sponsor will reserve sufficient powers and authority 
to insure that the Airport will be operated and maintained in accordance with the 
Act, the Regulations, and these covenants. 

13. The "Sponsor will maintain a master plan of the Airport having the current 
approval of the Administrator. Such plan shall show building areas, approach areas, 
and landing areas, indicating present and future proposed development. The Sponsor 
will conform to such master plan in making any future improvements or changes at 
the Airport which, if made contrary to the master plan, might adversely affect the 
safety, utility, or efficiency of the Airport.

inally proposed, engineering studies and prelim- 
inary plans have been made by the City for the 
extension of the subway west across the Chicago 
River to S. Kedzie Avenue and connecting with the 
Lake Street Elevated structure near N. Homan 
Avenue to provide the west side of the City of

less, to a point on the West bank of said River 
north of W. Harrison Street. Said tunnel was 
constructed in about the year 1893 by The 
Chicago Edison Company, predecessor in interest 
of the Company, as a conduit for its electric 
wires and cables, and was used for that pur- 
pose until the year 1917 when the land upon 
which said shaft and the northerly portion of 
said tunnel were constructed was acquired by 
The Sanitary District of Chicago pursuant to 
condemnation proceedings for widening the 
South Branch of the Chicago River. Soon there- 
after the Company removed said electric wires 
and cables, released and abandoned said tunnel 
and relinquished all right, title and interest in 
and to said land; and 

Whereas, the City has represented to the Com- 
pany that on account of the presence of said aban- 
doned shaft and tunnel the City will be put to 
extra cost and expense in constructing said Sub- 
way beneath said River, and asserts that the 
Company should be required to bear the cost of 
removal, excavation, sealing off, dewatering or 
other disposition of said shaft and said tunnel in 
so far as they, or any part thereof, constitute 
an obstruction to the construction of said Subway; 
and the Company, although accepting responsibil- 
ity for the initial construction and subsequent 
use prior to the year 1917 of said shaft and tunnel, 
disclaims any present right, title or interest there- 
in ; and 

Whereas, the City and the Company desire to 
avoid litigation and to compromise and settle their 
respective rights or liabilities as hereinafter pro- 
vided : 

Now, Therefore, in consideration of the premises 
and of the sum of One Hundred Twenty-five Thou- 
sand Dollars ($125,000.) in hand paid by the Com- 
pany, receipt whereof by the City is hereby ac- 
knowledged, the City, for itself, its agents, lessees, 
contractors and subcontractors, does hereby re- 
lease and forever discharge the Company, its suc- 
cessors and assigns, from all and all manner of 
cause or causes of action, suits, claims and de- 
mands whatsoever which the City has ever had 
or now has or may hereafter have against the 
Company by reason of the presence of said shaft 
and said tunnel, or any part thereof, in and under 
the surface or bed of said River, or by reason of 
any work done or to be done at any time by the 
City, or its agents, lessees, contractors or subcon- 
tractors, in or in connection with the removal, 
excavation, sealing off, dewatering or other dis- 
position of said shaft or said tunnel, or any part 
thereof; and the City hereby agrees to indemnify

and assigns, from and against any and all claims 
for damage either to persons or property sustained 
in connection with the removal, excavation, seal- 
ing off, dewatering or other disposition of said

and interest upon all certificates and bonds issued 
under said Act or otherwise, and that such rates 
shall not be reduced while any of said certificates 
or bonds are unpaid.

prayer. 



Alderman Carey moved that the prayer be printed 
in the official Journal of the Proceedings. 

The motion prevailed. (Alderman DuBois requested

The following is the prayer as offered: 

"Great, Eternal God, Father of all humanity, to 
whom men, whatever their creed bow in awe, 
knowing it is Thou who hath made us and not we 
ourselves; we pause in this moment of quiet to 
acknowledge our dependence upon Thee and to 
seek Thy guidance and help. Apart from Thy 
Spirit we become mean and self-centered and 
bigoted — twisting justice and morality to suit our 
convenience — neglectful of the ideals and high pur- 
poses apart from which there is no satisfaction in 
life which shall not crumble as dust in our hands. 

"Forgive us that we so often forget Thee — 
that we so often live as though we were account- 
able to ourselves alone — as though at last, our 
destiny were not in Thy hands. 

"We thank Thee, O Father for this great, and 
terrible city, in which we live and work and whose 
life is largely in our control. We thank Thee for 
those who, laboring and serving before us have 
made of our city a great melting pot for all peo- 
ples to live together in equity and justice and 
brotherhood; for honest and trustworthy men and 
women who have sought to build into the city's 
structure the 'community of God.' Grant us, we 
pray Thee, a noble vision of our city as it might 
be! Enable us to think of her as no mere imper- 
sonal thing of steel and stone, or of profit and loss, 
or as a plum to be plucked, but as a Sacred Com- 
munity of Human Persons — children of the Eter- 
nal God ! May we see it and mold it in the interest 
of all its people, forgetting not that the hopes and 
dreams of even the least of Thy children are not 
unlike our own. Teach us how to build the city

of our dreams into the structure of our very real 
city. 

"Help us to eliminate the blight of disease, of 
over-crowding, of sub-standard dwellings, of slums 
— fostering twisted bodies and minds, of graft and 
crooked deals in business and politics, of the un- 
derworld and over-world payoffs, of racial segre- 
gation, of religious intolerance, of the clash of 
caste and creed, that Chicago might become pat- 
terned after our best dreams — a place where jus- 
tice, brotherhood and honor dwelleth. 

"To this end, strengthen Thou the hands of our 
Mayor and of this City Council — that they may 
have wisdom and insight, largeness of heart, cour- 
age of their convictions, and a divine discontent 
with all that falls short of Thy Holy Will, that 
they may, with Thy help, guide our city to a new 
greatness — not of size, nor wealth, nor power, but 
of character and of spirit. Amen."

the Committee on Railway Terminals : 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

September 3, 1948. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a report of F. 
G. Gurley, Chairman of the Chicago South Side 
Railway Terminal Committee. 

This report comes after several years of study 
by this committee and deserves the active study 
and discussion of all of us. I believe it is one of the 
most important matters that is pending. 

To save time, I have transmitted a copy of the 
same matter to the Chicago Plan Commission for

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly,

with the documents transmitted therewith, Referred 
to the Committee on Finance: 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

August 26, 1948. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I transmit for your information a 
communication from the secretary of the Munici- 
pal Tuberculosis Sanitarium together with a copy 
of the financial statement covering the first six 
months of 1948. 

Your attention is invited to the unfavorable 
cash position in which the Municipal Tuberculosis 
Sanitarium finds itself due in part to the retention 
by the county treasurer of taxes paid under pro- 
test which are withheld in anticipation of court 
orders directing refunds. 

Remedial legislation seems necessary to reduce 
to a minimum possible objections to tax levies as 
well as to provide sources of revenue in addition 
to the tax on property to enable the tuberculosis 
sanitarium to care for our people who are sorely 
in need of treatment to prevent the spread of the 
dread disease. 

I will appreciate your assistance in the solution 
of this vexing financial problem before the next 
session of the State legislature. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

Operation of Devon-Broadway Buses on Granville-

Also the following communication, addressed to 
the Mayor and City Council under date of July 20, 
1948, signed by Philip Harrington, Chairman of the 
Chicago Transit Board, which was Referred to the 
Committee on Local Transportation: 

Chicago Transit Authority 

175 W. Jackson Boulevard, Room A-645 

Chicago 90, Illinois 

July 20, 1948. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor 
and City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Chicago Transit Authority is in re- 
ceipt of a notice from the City Clerk of the City 
of Chicago that the City Council, on June 28, 1948 
passed an order directing the discontinuance of 
Devon-Broadway bus operation on the Granville- 
Winthrop-Rosemont terminal loop. 

This is a comparatively new operation insti- 
tuted by the Authority to better serve many 
thousands of riders who desire to transfer, for 
the long ride, to the Rapid Transit Service. 

The terminal loop was established at the only 
available location where such transfer can be made 
convenient to the riding public. It is true that in 
every case where a new service is installed a few 
objectors always appear. Both the City and the 
Authority are concerned with best serving the 
public interest. We both can only be governed by 
what appears to best serve the majority. 

Nevertheless, the management of the Authority 
is making every effort to devise some alternate 
method of giving equally good service and re- 
quests that the order to discontinue be temporarily 
suspended until we can work out with the Council, 
or its appropriate committee, a solution most sat- 
isfactory to all. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 
Chairman. 



Naming of School in Honor of Arthur E. Canty. 

Also a resolution adopted by the Cook County Coun- 
cil of The American Legion urging the City Council 
and the Board of Education to name a school in 
memory of the late Arthur E. Canty in recognition of 
his outstanding contributions to veterans' welfare and 
to civic affairs. — Referred to the Committee on 
Schools, Fire, Police, Civil Service, and Municipal 
Institutions. 



Vacation of Alleys. 

Also a communication from Louis Perlman, 
addressed to the City Council under date of Septem- 
ber 10, transmitting a proposed order to direct the 
Commissioner of Public Works to prepare an ordi- 
nance for the vacation of all of the east-and-west

Sections 15-6 and 15-7 of the Revised Cities and

same tax that is anticipated by the new warrants, 
together with so much of the interest accrued

anticipation warrants will permit, shall be paid and 
cancelled. 

The proceeds of the sale of the new tax anticipa- 
tion warrants shall be paid to the City Treasurer 
to restore the funds of the City of Chicago in- 
vested in the original tax anticipation warrants.

original warrant, the City Treasurer shall sepa- 
rately endorse thereon the amount paid and the 
date of payment in the following order: (1) the 
principal amount so paid and (2) the amount of 
accrued interest paid. The City Treasurer shall 
also endorse upon the original tax anticipation 
warrants the amount of interest accrued thereon 
and unpaid, and the same shall not be paid until 
all principal and interest upon the new warrants 
shall be fully paid or until money has been set 
aside for payment thereof, if the new warrants 
are not presented for payment after they are called 
for redemption. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in force from 
and after its passage and approval.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



2761 



August 5, 1948. 

To the Honorable Chairman and Members of the 
Committee on Finance of the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a form of Proj- 
ect Application and Sponsor's Assurance Agree- 
ment covering the construction of a portion of the 
central terminal building with concrete apron and 
taxiways for the Chicago Orchard (Douglas) Air- 
port. This work comprises the first step in the 
permanent construction of the central terminal of 
the airport. 

The funds to be used for the construction of this 
project consist of the sum of $1,800,000 from the 
State of Illinois which was allotted out of the cur- 
rent State appropriation for expenditures on the 
Douglas Airport and the sum of $1,775,000 which 
the Civil Aeronautics Administration has allocated 
out of their current funds for the Douglas Airport. 
It is proposed that the City will not make any 
contribution of its own funds for the project. 

Inasmuch as the State funds must be spent in 
their entirety by September 1, 1949, or about 
thirteen months from now, it is essential that no 
time be lost in taking the preliminary steps toward 
securing these funds. It is suggested, therefore, 
that if possible approval be given at this time for 
the filing of the Project Application and Sponsor's 
Assurance Agreement, pending later confirmation 
by the City Council. This action in no way would 
bind the City since to make the Sponsor's Assur- 
ance Agreement effective, the City Council must 
later vote to accept the grant offer When formally 
made by the Government. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Ralph H. Burke, 

Airport Consultant.

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public 
Works, in accordance with his request of August 
17, 1948, be and he is hereby authorized to make 
application to the War Assets Administration in 
letter forms of August 17, 1948 and August 24, 
1948, attached hereto and made a part hereof, for 
the transfer gratis to the City of Chicago of ap- 
proximately 38 acres of land located at 130th 
Street and the Calumet River. 

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's rec-

The letter forms referred to in the foregoing order 
read respectively as follows: 

August 17, 1948. 
Committee on Finance, 
City of Chicago, 
Attention: Mr. John J. Duffy, 
Chairman. 

Re: — 38 Acres at 
130th Street & Calumet River 
Gentlemen : 

For your information and consideration, I am 
transmitting herewith an application to War As- 
sets Administration for the transfer of about 38 
acres at 130th Street and the Calumet River to the 
City of Chicago gratis. 

In support of that application I am also attach- 
ing copy of a letter from the Chicago Plan Com- 
mission urging acquisition of this property and 
also a copy of a letter from M. W. Oetershagen, 
Assistant Engineer, to the same effect. 

This is the site from which ships were built for 
the Navy by Pullman Company during the war. 
The Navy erected sundry buildings at an approxi- 
mate cost of $1,600,000. The land is owned by the 
Pullman Standard Car Manufacturing Company, 
but the agreement between Pullman and the Navy 
permits acquisition of the land 1 on an equitable 
basis which the WAA proposes to acquire before 
a transfer is made of the property either to the 
City or a private concern. 

I am informed that WAA has an offer of 
$600,000 from a private concern for the property. 

From my viewpoint the City has already paid 
for this property in the enormous amount of taxes 
paid during the War, — it not only paid for this 
one, but paid for Army and Navy installations out- 
side of the State, and as a matter of equity the 
WAA should acquire the fee to the Pullman prop- 
erty, pay for it, and turn the land and buildings 
over to the City without charge. That will insure 
the use of the property in the public interest. 

The newspapers have announced that WAA goes 
out of business on February 28, 1949 and that the 



Regional Office in Chicago hopes to dispose of all 
of the property it still has on hand by December 
1, 1948. 

Yours very truly, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

August 17, 1948. 
War Assets Administration, 
Navy Pier, 
Chicago 4, Illinois. 

Attention: Joseph A. Burke, 
Deputy Regional Director. 
Gentlemen : 

With reference to your inquiry, Nobs 391-Calu- 
met Harbor Yard-130th Street and Stony Island 
Avenue, we have checked and rechecked this prop- 
erty with the result that we believe that the most 
useful disposition of this property will be its trans- 
fer gratis to the City of Chicago. Such a disposi- 
tion, in our opinion, would best serve the interests 
of everyone concerned. By which we mean the best 
interests of lake boats, barges, motor trucking, 
railroads, industries in the Calumet district, busi- 
ness in general in Chicago, and, not least, the 
interest of the Army and Navy in case ox an 
emergency. 

That is the view of not only this office but of the 
Harbor Engineer, the Chicago Plan Commission 
and a private agency which has spent two weeks 
in investigating the property. A copy of the ex- 
pression of the Chicago Plan Commission is at- 
tached. 

Mr. Martin H. Oettershagen, Harbor Engineer, 
says, among other things : 

"No other property in Chicago is so well situ- 
ated in respect to lake navigation, barge naviga- 
tion, truck operation, and railroad access." 

Such a property, in our opinion, should be under 
the control of the City for the benefit of all con- 
cerned rather than its disposal to a private corpo- 
ration for its exclusive benefit. By such a disposi- 
tion the property would be devoted to public use 
and the public would derive benefit therefrom. The 
acquisition of this property by the City would pro- 
mote the development of Lake Calumet as a harbor 
which would lower the costs on heavy bulk ma- 
terials and would thereby be of benefit to sundry 
major industries and the buyers of their products. 

The City's contribution in taxes has been so 
enormous that we feel that the City has already 
paid for this property and many other properties 
developed during the war both inside and outside 
of the city. We consequently feel that we are mak- 
ing a fair and reasonable request and urge you to 
give it favorable consideration as soon as practic- 
able. 

Yours very truly, 

Commissioner of Public Works.

War Assets Administration, 
Navy Pier, 
Chicago, Illinois. 
Attention: Mr. Joseph Burke, 

Deputy Regional Director. 

Gentlemen : 

On August 17th, 1948, we sent you an applica- 
tion for the transfer of certain surplus real estate 
from the War Assets Administration to the City 
of Chicago. We also requested that the transfer 
be made Without payment of City Fund by the 
City.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



September 10, 1948 



The property is described by you as NOBS-391, 
Calumet Harbor Yard 130th Street and Stony 
Island Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. 

With this letter we are attaching 4 maps which 
show the strategic location of this property with 
respect to railroads, existing and proposed high- 
ways, waterways, and ground occupancy. A study 
of these maps will undoubtedly convince you that 
this particular property is the most important 
piece of real estate in the whole Calumet Harbor 
Development. 

Beyond any question such parcel of land should 
be controlled and utilized by the City for the bene- 
fit of the Community rather than transferred to 
some individual or corporation for its own profit. 
From our viewpoint the transfer of this property 
to an individual is highly detrimental to the public 
interest. 

We believe it is most unfair for the Federal Gov- 
ernment to take advantage of the fact that because 
of a war it acquired such a highly important parcel 
of land and then consider transferring it to a pri- 
vate owner for his benefit and profit to the dis- 
advantage of other private industries and thereby 
eliminate a substantial factor in the City's devel- 
opment of its harbor facilities. 

In the past where industrial areas and harbor 
districts have grown up in a hit-or-miss fashion 
it has been almost impossible for a city to foresee 
what locations would be most desirable and advan- 
tageous from the community's viewpoint. Hence, 
private corporations organized for profit, have fre- 
quently acquired property which the City could 
have put to more equitable use. That sort of a 
mistake should be avoided in the Calumet Harbor 
project, — the development of which is in its in- 
fancy. 

The Federal Government should aid the City in 
developing a harbor area which would be of enor- 
mous advantage to the entire country in case of 
war which the newspaper daily intimates is not im- 
possible and sometimes gives the impression that it 
is not too far away. It would be to the distinct 
advantage of the entire nation, in case of emer- 
gency, to have a harbor development in a public 
ownership which would readily transfer its utiliza- 
tion to the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Forces. 
That reasoning has been endorsed by the U. S. 
Air Forces and the War Assets Administration. 
Permit two illustrations : 

The Air Forces in transferring 1,080 acres of 
land with four runways at the Douglas Airfield 
site specifically provided that the property must 
be used for airport purposes. 

The second illustration is that the War Assets 
Administration in transferring the Army Hangar 
at the Municipal Airport specifically provided that 
it must be used for airport purposes. I think I 
recall that the property reverts to the Government 
if there is a violation of this requirement. 

May we reiterate that we feel quite strongly 
that this property should be transferred gratis to 
the City. We feel that the City of Chicago by its 
payment of taxes has already paid, in full, for this 
property several times over. 

Yours very truly, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 



Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago :

ately thereafter commenced the performance of 
said contract by purchasing materials and equip- 
ment required for said installation and appeared 1 to 
be ready, willing, and able to perform its contract 
in accordance with the terms thereof; and 

Whereas, completion of the superstructure of 
the N. State Street bridge by another contractor 
of the City was delayed for several years, making 
it impossible for the Fries-Walters Company to 
perform its contract until the year 1948 ; and 

Whereas, due to the war and the after-effects of 
the war, construction costs have increased substan- 
tially above those prevailing at the time the con- 
tract should have been performed but for the delay 
referred to, and the contractor has presented 
claims to cover these increased costs ; and 

Whereas, it is considered in the best interests of 
the City and in the speedy completion of the span 
to make adjustment of the contract price for the 
work and materials to be performed by Fries-Wal- 
ters Company; now, therefore, 
Be It Ordained by the City Council df the City of
